    Roll cage tie in

    Was thinking about Calamity Jane and the videos and reminded me of my most recent re-build and my need to tie in the roll cage.
    We rolled it about 15 years ago and the cage wasn't tied in. It held up and protected us...but there was significant tub damage.

    Thinking about this option to tie it to the frame.

    It is from GenRight but didn't know what other options are available

    I'm too time constrained to build it from scratch

    Thanks
    Not so proud of my welds but they seem to hold and penetrate so ...

    Next step- burn mounting bracket in to frame and cut extension tube to angle

    Should be strong now
    In the past it wasn't tied in and when we rolled it crinkled the tub
